  • I don't think you're crazy. Just follow your heart and do what you feel is right! Your instincts are the best thing to follow. I'm starting to feel the "baby bug" again so who knows what will happen!

  • yes you are nuts!!!! haha wait till baby number one is at least 3... make she shes is passed the terrible twos and listens to you well!! she might listen now but once you get pregnant shes going to start getting to the age where you just want to die!!! just wait a little longer, dont rush things!!

  • I dont think you're crazy. My Hubby and I had our first when I was 18 and our second after I just turned 20. This is the course of life I choose to take. I wanted to be a mom. (Not like irrartional 12 year olds want to be a mom lol) So no I do not think you're crazy.

  • I say if your in a stable relationship that you know will last then wait until your youngest is about 2 or 3 then have one. Your not crazy for wanting another baby....some women are just that way. I wanted kids to ( you know growing up wanting to be a mommy) but when I got married at 18....man I did it when I could....sorry..haha...but I wanted kids, had one...when she got to be 2 I said I want another one and then waited a little longer for my third, cause I was looking for a bigger house but I had her about two and half years after my second. It's your choice but make sure you know you can handle what comes your way. Your age really doesn't have anything to do with it...cause your young...wanna talk about crazy....I'm crazy...I am 40 and often think about having another one because all my kids left home.

  • It depends. Do you have the finances to support the additional child? Are you emotionally ready is he? If you can meet the needs of the children you have and one more then no you're not crazy. If you want something and know that you're not fully ready then yes you're.
